Boat Story (New Poem)

Extended like a playing card
Leaves cover the tip of your boat
Dropped in the absence
Of a captain stood on top
Shouting out orders,

Coloured candy
In dripping water

Echoing your sneezing
In each passing moment

Unfolded across
Each town

Tuning into the silence
Of your stuttering engine.

(Wrote for National Poetry Day on the theme of remember.
This is about memories of a boat trip from many years ago)
